Jimmy Eat World frontman Jim Adkins has discussed the band's new album in a recent interview with Phoenix People.
"What I'm hoping to get out of it, the way we've been recording it, it's a lot less slick. It's not to say we didn't take our time and mix it and make sure performances were good and things were sounding good, I think we just had a better sense of what to let go and what to focus on. That comes from paying more attention to the vibe of things rather than the perfection of things. The short answer is that it's definitely rougher-sounding, a little grittier. I don't think it's going to sound like anything we've done. It'll be similar yet different."
The new album is the follow up to the band's 2010 album "Invented", and is expected to be released in early 2013.
